so why did scrotes blame her for the heinous act of having to deal with an abusive husband to the point they harassed her actress over it?

Because most men misinterpereted the story about a man's pride getting him into a situation he couldn't handle, instead as another story about rising and grinding and not letting haters (especially the "bitchy" ones) get in their way.
It's a similar case as what happened with Wolf Of Wallstreet.

She received a good bit of online harrassment for the character. Nothing on the level of troons vs JK Rowling but still.

its so annoying because the show is a nice story but so many people missed the point that the main character is not supposed to be a good person or a role model
they are, she even wrote a new york times piece about it


heres some excerpts of it

>But I was unprepared for the vitriolic response she inspired. Thousands of people have “liked” the Facebook page “I Hate Skyler White.” Tens of thousands have “liked” a similar Facebook page with a name that cannot be printed here. When people started telling me about the “hate boards” for Skyler on the Web site for AMC, the network that broadcasts the show, I knew it was probably best not to look, but I wanted to understand what was happening.

>At some point on the message boards, the character of Skyler seemed to drop out of the conversation, and people transferred their negative feelings directly to me. The already harsh online comments became outright personal attacks. One such post read: “Could somebody tell me where I can find Anna Gunn so I can kill her?” Besides being frightened (and taking steps to ensure my safety), I was also astonished: how had disliking a character spiraled into homicidal rage at the actress playing her?

>But I finally realized that most people’s hatred of Skyler had little to do with me and a lot to do with their own perception of women and wives. Because Skyler didn’t conform to a comfortable ideal of the archetypical female, she had become a kind of Rorschach test for society, a measure of our attitudes toward gender.

I think it has to do with the character's demeanor, regardless of the fact that she was in the right for trying to get away from Walt. It's proof that framing and presentation in fiction is a lot more powerful than the actual actions of said character.
